Charles G. Sessner (BSE CEE ’52) has provided a gift to endow the Sessner Scholarship at the College of Engineering. This scholarship will provide need-based support for full-time undergraduate students at the College, with a preference to support students who are receiving work-study support or loans.
Mr. Sessner served at Spicer Engineering for 31 years and as president of the firm for 8 years. Spicer Engineering is a firm that provides services in civil engineering, surveying, and community planning.
As a University of Michigan student, Mr. Sessner completed his coursework while working a job to support himself. His academic merit and financial need qualified him to receive scholarship support from the Class of 1906, and this funding was a tremendous help as he earned bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 1952. Being a recipient of scholarship support made a significant impact on his life, and he would like to provide that same opportunity to current students.
Mr. Sessner resides in Parker, Colorado.
